      Upcoming Changes to the Fantasy Flight Games Forums   01/20/2017

      Hello Fantasy Flight Games forum community!   This week, we will be making some important changes to your Fantasy Flight Games community account and the way that you log into the Fantasy Flight Games community forums and web store.   We have been working hard to integrate with the rest of the Asmodee group, and we are happy to announce a unified way to access all the websites and apps made by Fantasy Flight Games, Days of Wonder, and Asmodee!   For most users, nothing will change: you will still log into the Fantasy Flight Games forums using your current login name and password. Only the login user interface will be new.   For a few users, your credentials might be slightly changed. For example, this could happen to users who have both a Fantasy Flight Games and Days of Wonder account, or in the case of conflicting login names across platforms. When these situations occur, special e-mails will be sent to those users with an easy explanation about those changes and what steps to take next. For any of you receiving those e-mails, please make sure to follow the instructions carefully.   Remember, official communications from Fantasy Flight Games or Asmodee.Net will never ask for your password.   What are the benefits for you as a player? Using a unified account to access all of our web services and apps makes your life simpler. Over time, you will see new features emerging, such as keeping all of your friends under a single account, finding friends easily in apps with online play, or developing your personal profile by adding to your board games collection. These are just some of the features that you will see during the next year, once this important technical step is complete.   Important note: The migration of the forums to our new system will take place on Tuesday, January 24th. The forums will be offline for about two hours during that time. Once the migration is complete, older forum posts may look strange for up to 24 hours as we rebuild them in our new system.   We can’t wait to connect our board game communities and build bridges between universes, game systems, players, events, groups, game clubs, and more! This is only the first step in bringing people and games closer together. For more information, read our FAQ at https://asmodee.helpshift.com/a/asmodee-net/.   Best regards,   The Fantasy Flight Games Team

what the flip???????? New Expansion..........

40 posts in this topic

Looks like I was right rereleasing D1E stuff,

let me edit that they are pimping it up a lot with a couple of new quests.

I said before they should do that I do think it's good they made it an add on for people who already have the models in 1st edition.

I'm sure some will moan because the release speed is epic.

I don't mind so much personally. Edited by Lilikin

Those new sculpts look pretty awesome.  Almost makes me sad that I already have all the 1E figures from the good old days.

 

I'm among those who was wishing FFG would slow down the expansions a bit, but maybe if they're investing a certain amount of time into these rehash packs, the actual new material will be spaced out a bit more (maybe.)  In that way, perhaps I'm getting what I wished for after all. =)

 

I'm going to need someone to transcribe the fluff from those new quests so I can milk them for my Runiverse Fluff docs though.  =P

I'm super stoked for these. I was working on collecting the original DE1 stuff, particularly monsters, so a re-release of them makes it that much cheaper for me, especially since of the new models, they definitely seem cooler than the original molds.

Holy. Crap.

 

I had no idea what the OP was talking about. Then... I saw it. I'm in awe, so happy! Shiver is one of my all-time favorite heroes (not a HUGE fan of his redesign), so I'm psyched his character is being brought back and fleshed out!

 

Beastmen are must-have monster groups so I'm very happy they and bane spiders are back. A little sad that Nagas aren't getting the remake treatment just yet, but I think they'll pop up sooner or later (along with medusae, please!). The bane spiders look terrifying.

I'm very excited about this expansion. I'm big fan of rumor cards. They add alot of diversity to the game. New "old" monsters casts look epic. Can't wait to see new kobolds in next monster and hero expansion.

 

Right and I almost forgot to say it :

 

"Shut up and take my money" :)

Well, as happy as i am im raging a little right now. Having tracked down the first edition stuff (having taken a lot of time and money) on the basis that the conversion kit stuff was not going to be coming back anytime soon if ever........

Need to get these figures as the sculpt quality is so much higher.

Wonder if they may update some of the characters from the conversion kit to address a few issues.

EDIT:

Just a quick bit of thinking means that if these sell well (and they almost certainly will) i would hazard between 8-12 packs of these based on the number of heroes and monsters available in the conversion kit.

God damn my completionist needs. My poor wallet.

On the other hands 16-24 new quests sounds excellent!

Do these heroes also have their own class deck?

Or are they just the mini's and the hero card?

 

Either way, this makes me very happy, especially regarding the monsters.

Can't wait to have all the 1e monsters.

4 Heros and 3 monsters groups ! At this rate it's going to take a while collecting them all, and a lot of cash too.

 

Looks like it's time to sell all these D1 expansions.

 

I would have like if they announced that 1 year ago. I would not have hunted down all these D1 minis.

First of all sorry for possibly bad english but i am writing from Bavaria, Germany.

 

i really dont get it.... why did ffg make that ? it only interesting for people who dont have D1 stuff. I got everything from d1 so i probably wont buy it. If they make re-design of old monsters and heroes, it would cost the same to make boxes with 3 new monsters and 4 new heroes, and that would by interesting for alle D2 players, no matter if you have D1 or not you would buy the monster/hero sets. But in this case not all of the D1 owners will buy this stuff.

 

And i read of many people that bought upgrade kit or D1 stuff on ebay, and all of them are mad as hell now. So FFG why did you make old stuff instead of making new stuff for the same costs ?

It does not look like they are including a new class. This is just a way for people to people to access stuff that was only available via 1st Edition. What's interesting is that it looks like they even upgraded Shiver's Health from 8 to 10. I'm curious what other small tweaks have been made.

Wow! Keep them comming FFG. I'm very glad of this annuoncement.

First came the solo/cooperative adventure - that made me very happy. I can't wait to try it out becouse it sounds like a lot of fun. And when it comes out I can play Descent when ever I want even when alone. Superb!

And now this one, thank You FFG! I have all my figures from 1e but I will still buy this one and the next ones. Not only for the new great looking sculps but also for more balanced monsters & heroes. Of course also for those new quests.

 

For me this game is evolving very fast and comming out very fast - it's amazing and I hope it will stay this way! I'm very happy that almost every month I'm getting something new for this game and can buy me some new stuff for Descent 2nd. Descent is growing bigger and bigger and with every expansion is getting better and better. Thank You FFG, keep those comming!

 

Cheers

 

PS. Hero & Monster Collection is an updated and more balanced then the conversion kit - as designers say. So thet's maybe why Shiver has more HP and Bane Spider is a ranged attacker now. I'm very glad thet they decided to balance those heroes and monsters more becouse sometimes it was very unbalaced - some where very weak and others too strong. And those expansions will not have any new classes as I can read from the description & annuncement pages. Each pack will be 4 heroes, 3 or more monsters groups and 2 quests - nothing more.

Same here, and i'm a bit disapointed.

But i must admits some monsters needed new sculpts, and almost all heroes; Hope some heroic feat will be rewrite too (like challara so Brightblaze can make a breath of fire attack)

seven figures (four hero, and three monster)

 

Maybe I'm just being clueless, but how does a single monster count as a group? Does the set actually contain three groups, or three single monsters?

I'm almost sure the two other heroes are Trenloe the strong and Elder Mok

 

 

 

Question is; if many monsters and heros have been rebalanced, how will they FAQ/Errata this?

Simple. Old ones will be errated with new ones text.

It says "Along with the seven figures" which would make you think that there's only 4 hero and 3 monster minis in the box. But this wouldn't be the first time a press release was wrong.

Hahaha... I am in exactly the same situation!  I wouldn't mind if they did just the Promo and DQ stuff again, I didn't manage to get my hands on those :)

I hope it's a typo. When they say monsters groups, I understood it was going to be: all the beastmans needed to play,etc

 

If it's just 1 beastman mini, it's going to be terrible.

 

 

I'm almost sure the two other heroes are Trenloe the strong and Elder Mok

If most of the monsters are reworked, it's going to get messy. 3 pages of faq only for monsters and heros. :rolleyes:

I would assume they include the full complement of monster figures...but this is something to check before buying.

 

Another thing to check is for coins under the sofa...how am I ever going to afford all this?  Maybe I'll find a Stamina Potion there, and can sell it for its Gold.   :)

There's no way they would sell just one of each monster. It's worded strangely, but the collection must include all necessary monsters for the monster groups.

Agree with Ringskipper,  Its illogical they sold only one monster of each type in a box. Am pretty sure they mean 7 different scultures.
